“I treasure your word in my heart, so as not to sin against you. » (Psalms 119:11)
“I cherish your word in my heart. The Word of God represents his revelation in general, as well as his commandments and his promises.
The Bible says this in 1 Cor 6: v 17 “But whoever is joined to the Lord is one spirit with him. Loving the Word in the heart means clinging to the Word and Jesus is the Word (Jn 1:1).
This is why the psalmist says: “I treasure your word in my heart, so as not to sin against you”. When we have Jesus in our heart or when we accept him as Lord and Savior, we should find pleasure in meditating on the word of God (Ps 1:1-2; Joshua 1:8). We must love his word!
This is why the apostle John says in his epistle 1 John 3:9 “No one who is born of God practices sin, because the seed of God remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. »
The word of God must dwell in our hearts so as not to sin against God. We must make the word our priority, take the time to meditate on it and put it into practice.
I give an example for a good understanding of the thought of this verse: “we hug the person for whom we have affection, while your enemy, you cannot hug him”. It is the same with sin. Sin is our enemy and the word of God is our friend. One must have affection for the word of God.
The seed refers to the new birth, to the word of God or to the Holy Spirit. But in all of this, when the seed of God dwells in the life of the Christian, sin must automatically take the door.
Pr 4:23 “Keep your heart above all else, for out of it come the springs of life. »
Mk 7:21-22 “For out of the heart of men come evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders…”
it is in the heart that desire and decisions are born.
It is impossible to hold the word of God in your heart and continue to sin.
What can keep us from sinning is holding the word of God to our hearts. Our heart must be the seat of the Holy Spirit or the Word of God.
We must hold the word of God in our heart, in our soul and in our spirit so as not to sin against God.
To follow God and know his ways, we must make a firm decision to abide, consecrate ourselves, and seek first his kingdom and his righteousness (Mt 6:33).
Let everyone reevaluate their priorities: if our thirst for God and his kingdom is diminishing; we need to honestly acknowledge our lukewarmness and sincerely pray for a renewed desire for God and His favor.
Prayer: In order not to sin against you, Lord, every day, fill me with the Holy Spirit, so that I hold your word in my heart, Amen!
Stay blessed in his grace and love
